What a MARVELOUS week. Happy Easter!
|Selfie Before the Baptism|
|Brother Tate, Seif, Sister Alligood and I|
Our investigator Seif, was baptized on Good and when we are struggling. But because he suffered and was crucified, He then was resurrected. He rose from the dead, so that one day, we may all be resurrected too. We will all have perfect bodies one day, and we will be with our friends and families who aren't here anymore. We will be able to see them again because of what Jesus Christ did.! Then he was confirmed on Easter ! He couldn't have picked two more special days. It was a very spiritual service. You could tell that he was SO happy. The talks that were shared by some of the ward members talked a lot about the Savior's atonement and his suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane. After the baptism, while we were waiting for Seif to get dried off and changed, we shared one of the churches Bible Videos. It was the one where we actually see Jesus Christ suffering and his apostles keep falling asleep. The spirit was so strong and it is amazing to think about how the Savior truly suffered for each of our sins, one by one. He didn't do it all at once. He knows exactly how we feel, when we are sick, when we are sad,

My last area, Elkins, WV, had a baptism this week as well. it was amazing to hear about it and to hear about how Steve, a 6 foot tall man with a grey mullet, teared up because he felt the spirit touch his heart. What an amazing sight that must have been! I am so grateful I had the opportunity to work with him. He is amazing! I can't wait for when I get to come back to visit after my mission and to see how much this gospel has blessed his life. MY MISSION IS TO BLESS.
#Ponderize "And now, behold, I will testify unto you of myself that these things are true. Behold, I say unto you, that I do know that Christ shall come among the children of men, to take upon him the transgressions of his people, and that he shall atone for the sins of the world; for the Lord God hath spoken it."
I love y'all, I love my Mission, and I love the Lord.
